Thread Name: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
Subject: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
This is a continuation of the thread--Child Ballads: US Versions. I'm studying the Child ballads and putting text and music on my web-site: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/the-305-child-ballads.aspx
So far we've looked at ballads 1-53. My focus is on the US and Canadian versions but I'm also including Child's narrative and the English and other versions.
Recently I've started and nearly completed Child 54, the Cherry Tree Carol: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/54-the-cherry-tree-carol.aspx
If anyone has any additional versions of The Cherry Tree Carol please post them.
TY for the help and contributions you have made to this study. There are new insights, additions and corrections that we have made.
